Default Mom makes fantastic Disney dresses for her daughter

You won't believe some of these -- and she makes them out of thrift store goods like valances, bed sheets, and shower curtains. They are really stunning. I got lost for about an hour yesterday on her Tumblr feed.













Her daughter doesn't just dress up as characters; she wears other Disney costumes like her favorite workers in the park:


Main Street Confectionary shop worker:





Flower Maiden for the Festival of Fantasy:





And some of the dresses! They are every little girl's fantasy, with poofy sleeves, hoop skirts, and big bows -- and Disney characters!


Little Mermaid dress:





Empire Strikes Back dress:





Mickey & Minnie dress:





Can't forget the Superman dress:





And she makes other playclothes for her too, out of sheets, pillowcases, doilies, thrift store dresses, etc.:






Can you tell I am just in awe?!? Mad skillz. Doesn't hurt that her daughter's stinkin' adorable.

Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

While they are stunning, the child is being conditioned to be Shirley Temple.

What happens when she grows up and she is seen as ordinary?

All that adoration and attention.

Or, she could grow up to be Sleeping Beauty and still be adored.

It is expensive to make a trip to the park and private audiences are costly too... I was thinking perhaps Mom may be an employee perhaps one of the costumers, or at least hold a season pass.

I was thinking the same thing. I wonder if she might make costumes for the park too?

Here's the article I got the original link from: http://6abc.com/hobbies/mom-sews-inc...-world/386017/

It sounds like the mom just loves all things Disney. Remember that the kid is free since she's under 3. Depending on the passes they have, it sounds like they certainly get their money's worth.

ETA: I guess she's not free, lol, since she's already turned 3. But the weekday-only passes are under $250 for the whole year, so that's still a good deal if you're going twice a week.

Just showed it to another tenant and she asked if I saw Gone Girl.

I don't think it is a good idea to promote children. Evidently in the movie the beautiful young womans parents promote her with disastrous results.

It is charming, she did help the girls shyness.

Parents often get the child into dancing lessons to bring them out of shyness and it works.

Bringing up healthy kids is a big job.

I foresee an upcoming email from Disney attorneys for intellectual property violations.

heh... Even Disney's deep pockets couldn't pay to get as much positive publicity as this Tumbler account is providing.

Nope. Disney knows a good thing when they see it.

You can buy Disney-authorized costume patterns from any fabric shop. And once a costumer or skilled seamstress has those, she can change them into actual clothes. (Costumes generally take shortcuts and produce a skimpy outfit, suitable for a couple of hours; clothes are for general wear.)
